More concerts

Apart from the Concerts at Kings and Easter at King's series, King's hosts a number of concerts, mostly during term time. These concerts include those organised by the King's College Music Society (KCMS). 



Saturday 21 January 2017, 8.00pm

Cambridge University Chamber Orchestra
Members of CUMS Symphony Orchestra
Choirs of Clare, Gonville & Caius, Jesus and Selwyn Colleges Members of CUMS Symphony Chorus and Cambridge University Chamber Choir Choristers of Jesus College and St Catharine’s College Girls’ Choir

  • Paul Daniel conductor
  • Claudia Huckle contralto

This concert promises to be an unmissable highlight of the Cambridge University Musical Society 2016-17 season. It presents a rare opportunity to hear a complete performance of Mahler’s Third Symphony, one of the most grandiose symphonies ever composed. Conceived as a musical depiction of the natural world, the Symphony is not regularly performed due to its large-scale orchestral forces. The joining of Cambridge’s finest student instrumentalists and singers for this extraordinary work will result in one of the most memorable concerts in CUMS’ history.

We are incredibly lucky to be joined by internationally acclaimed conductor Paul Daniel for this project. Daniel is an alumnus of King’s College and has appeared as a guest conductor with major orchestras and opera companies worldwide, as well as holding prestigious permanent positions. He has recently appeared as the judge on the BBC Series ‘The Great Orchestra Challenge’.
